    He has applied for a medical redshirt but not sure which way he will go. If the NFL people tell him he needs another year to prove he has come back from the leg injury I think he will stay at Louisville. If they tell him he is a top ten pick he'll go.

    You're right...he has until the end of his senior year to apply but he doesn't have to declare until right before the draft. He could and will get his medical redshirt if he wants it but he could also decline it at a later date.

    hahah heeeeelarious. im with you c-mize. lets get the running back this time.

    and im not that worried about our O-line. I think Jags has us in a good spot and the young guys will continue to grow together and be a great line by next year. I think we will need to replace clifton. but other than that i think we can go with this line and a couple good backs and have a run game to speak of.

    Tony Hunt from Penn State is creeping up some boards a lot faster than people realize, maybe he'd be a good second round option and we can go tight end or DB first

    No TE is worth taking as high as we're draft. Last years Draft was loaded with TE's. This year not so much. Olsen from Miami is probably the top one and he'll go mid to late 1st at the earliest.

    I think you have to look at RB, DL, and SS in round 1. If you can get a game changer at either or postion then you take him.

    Small guy. 5'7" 175 range. He needs to bulk up some. I think the highest he goes is the 4th round if he bulks up. Problem though if he bulks up he might slow down some. So he'll have a tough time getting drafted high in my opinion. I think 4th or 5th round guy. He might be able to be a 3rd down back somewhere.

    Garret Wolf seemed to me Small Speedy and the only reason Northern Illinois bet Miami Ohio. He looked like he was worth maybe the 3rd round. Kind of like Jerome Harrison from WSU.

    Jones Drew for the Jags is a small RB but hes doing well as a bakup, change of pace bac, Wolfe could do a similar job for us.

    Really?

    I recall Domanick Davis signing a 4 year extension worth 22 million not to long ago.

    Contract info: Signed a four-year, $22 million contract extension through 2009 on 8/6/2005. The deal includes $8 million in guarantees. Davis is due base salaries of, for 2006: $1,700,000, 2007: $3,340,000, 2008: $4,180,000, 2009: $4,550,000.

    He did that before Kubiak got there.

    He was very close to being release this off season but since he was hurt they put him on IR. It was all over NFL Total Access.

    Quote from Houston.

    the guy who posted the blog is probaby their most known Sports Writer. Goes on Sportscenter and talks about Houston sports (mostly Astros) most of the time.

    So from this it appears Davis' career in Houston is over or at least on a short leash.

    So unless GB stinks more than the Texans which is very hard to do, no way the Texans pass on Peterson who might be a better RB than Bush.

    dude, when I saw uwbadger calling him AP I managed to restrain myself from calling him,

    but now I gotta call both of you!

    They aren't calling him AP, they call him AD as in "ALL DAY" because he get's better and better as the game go on, the other players wear down but Adrian Peterson don't! :D

    Antonio Pittman - ohio state
    not much attention paid to him b/c of the osu qb and wr
    he is really good

    Garrett Wolfe
    very very very good back, who would go a littel lower in 1st round

    I like Pittman but Wolfe's size is just not for the NFL.

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/footba ... yers/3825/

    5'7" 177 according to that. He won't go in the first 2 rounds because of that.

    Before people say Maurice Drew. Drew is 205. That's nearly 30 pounds more than Wolfe and that's a lot. So Wolfe is a late 3rd round pick at best but in all likely hood rated out as a Day 2 prospect.

    Much like Darren Sproles but just not as elusive. He's more productive in college though.

    Wolf will probably be considered a potential KR/PR and not a potential RB. He might be used in some trickplays, reverses or direct snaps etc.
